What appears to be a Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Voyager prototype has appeared on the Chinese social website weibo. The figure appears to be a heavy retool of the "Robots in Disguise" Voyager Optimus Prime mold, and is speculated to be the rumored "Beast Hunters" Voyager Ultra Magnus. As you can see below the figure features many similarities to Ultra Magnus as he appears in IDW's Transformers Prime: Rage of the Dinobots miniseries.

Take this with the usual grain of salt until we receive more official confirmation, but word reaches us from the Australian fansite Ozformers that Hasbro versions of Masterpiece Soundwave and Acidstorm are on the way. Ozformers member Ultra Mackness contacted Hasbro Australia customer regarding the possible release of Masterpiece Soundwave and received the reply found below. According to the rep Hasbro is planning to release Masterpiece Soundwave through Toys"R"Us in July. After receiving this information Ozformers member griffin contacted Toys"R"Us to see if any other Masterpiece figures were listed in their system, and they replied with Acidstorm. If these turn out to be accurate they would likely both also be released Stateside.

Ozformer's Ultra Mackness wrote:Okay so to help me make a decision about whether I give Takara my cash for MP Soundwave, I decided to email Hasbro about whether there will be a Hasbro release of MPSW or not and just got this reply:

Hi Michael, I am sorry for the delay in responding. I have checked with a colleague who specializes in Transformers. He has confirmed that the Masterpiece Soundwave line will be sold in Australia through Toys-R-Us, but not until July 2013. They are expected to sell in Toys-R-Us from July to September. Kind regards, Hasbro Consumer Services

Ozformer's griffin wrote:As mentioned in the Hasbro MP Soundwave topic (which is now confirmed to be coming out in mid-2013), I asked ToysRUs if any more Masterpiece toys are in their system, hoping it was Sideswipe.... but no, a different Masterpiece toy by Hasbro is coming to ToysRUs at the same time as Soundwave.....


Acid Storm.
A green Starscream redeco, to add to the Masterpiece seeker squadron.

Priced at AU$100, it is $20 more than Thundercracker... so could have a similar price increase in America.


Considering how many Masterpiece toys are coming out of Japan at the moment, I was not expecting Hasbro to release one that Japan hasn't done (yet).
Acid Storm was a classic-verse toy/character that didn't get released in Japan either, so maybe this MP toy is a Hasbro exclusive as well.

No description of the other three, but this does seem to confirm the previously rumored Voyager Shockwave mold. No mention of the Arms Micron gimmick returning. All are estimated to arrive in April.

Update:new listings have been added including EZ Collection figures, which feature some interesting names such as Prowl, Hound, and Tank Megatron.

New Transformers Prime "Beast Hunters" Voyager listings found? That's what the latest rumor making it's way around the internet would have us to believe. These listings are said to have come from Wal-Mart's computer system, and appear to reveal three previously unknown upcoming Voyager Class figures.

The first two listings seem to match up with Voyager Wave 1, Optimus Prime and Predaking.

TRA PRM BST OP - Optimus Prime, pretty straight forward.

TRA PRM BST DR - Predaing, the DR likely meaning dragon.

Things get more interesting when we examine the next three listings.

TRA PRM BST SHKW - Shockwave would make sense. He's a popular character, we know he will appear in Season 3 "Beast Hunters", and Hasbro has yet to release him in toy form. Could be a situation similar to the recently revealed "Beast Hunters" Deluxe Smokescreen.

TRA PRM BST UM - Ultra Magnus also seems likely. He's already received two figures in the previous "Robots in Disguise" line, he's currently appearing in the Transformers Prime: Rage of the Dinobots miniseries which leads into Season 3, we already know he's going to get a Weaponizer class figure in the "Beast Hunters" line. The question being would this figure be a new mold, or a spiky retool of his existing Voyager Class figure.

TRA PRM KNT TL - ?, speculate away on this one.

Keep in mind Toy Fair is less than a month away, so we won't have to wait too long to see if these listing are accurate.

Here are the listings as reported by Seibertron.com Ominous Prime-Evil

Considering how quickly the last couple of rumors concerning Transformers 4 were shot down by Michael Bay himself it should go without saying that anything we hear as this point should be taken with a grain of salt unless officially confirmed. That being said, we do have another TF4 casting rumor. ITFN is reporting that Jack Reynor has been offered the role of Mark Wahlberg's daughter's love interest. According to the report the young actor auditioned three times before being offered the role by Michael Bay himself. So far Bay as yet to confirm or deny the validity of this one.

ITFN wrote:Reynor will take over the lead role initially played by Shia LaBeouf, who starred in the original three films, which are based on the Marvel comic series. Reynor is expected to play the love interest of Mark Wahlberg’s character’s daughter.

The rumor mill was sent into overdrive earlier this week when MTV Geek reported a rumor that Disney was looking into purchasing Hasbro. This coming shortly after Disney shocked the entertainment world with their 4.05 billion dollar acquisition of Lucasfilm. This prompted CNBC's David Faber to contact Hasbro for confirmation or denial. According to Hasbro's advisors there is nothing going on between Hasbro and Disney. See below:

Source: Providence Journal


Providence Journal wrote:Stock in the Pawtucket-based toymaker (HAS:Nasdaq) spiked 6.8 percent to $38.66 at the opening bell amid speculation that Disney (DIS:NYSE) was preparing a multi-billion dollar bid for Hasbro.

Hasbro declined comment, citing its policy of not talking about rumor or speculation. CNBC analyst David Faber reported that Hasbro's advisors told him there's "absolutely nothing going on that they are aware of at all, in any way, shape or form" involving Hasbro or Disney.
Wall Street analysts said a Disney acquisition didn't make much sense, just after Disney agreed to buy Lucasfilm Ltd. for $4.05 billion. And for any deal to happen, Hasbro would have to dissolve agreements with Disney's competitors.

As all of you are probably aware by now Disney made big news last week when they announced they had purchased Lucasfilm for over 4 billion dollars. It looks like Mickey and company haven't put away the old checkbook just yet. MTV Geek is reporting a rumor that Disney is now in negotiations to purchase Hasbro! It's just a rumor for now, but according to MTV Geek a reliable source has stated high level discussions are happening at this moment. Click here to visit MTV Geek for the full story.

Is Opti-mouse Prime in our future?

MTV Geek wrote:Well, we have it on good authority that serious discussions are happening at the highest levels of both Disney and Hasbro to fold the largest toy and game company on the planet into the Mouse.


MTV Geek wrote:The acquisition would give Disney the rights to Transformers, G.I. Joe, Dungeons and Dragons, Beyblade, Battleship, Nerf, and Magic: The Gathering among several dozen other game titles and IP. When you add Marvel and Star Wars to that list it’s a pretty comprehensive lock on boy’s entertainment; a far cry from a few years back when Disney was heavily criticized for losing its grip on boys.


The ramifications to the Transformers hobby could potentially be extremely significant. Everything from the upcoming 2014 Transformers movie to BotCon locations to potential exclusives being available at Disney stores could be affected by this decision. Tell us what you think by clicking here.

As always, treat this rumor with a grain of salt until official confirmation.

*EDIT* Michael Bay has updated his website to address this rumor:

The Mark Wahlberg T4 rumor is just a rumor.

Mark and I are talking about another film project.

ComingSoon.net had this to say:

The 2014 section kicked off with the next entry of the Transformers franchise. Obviously there was no footage to show, but the title does reveal a clever logo, the right half of the standard transformers symbol acting as the stem of the number four.


And there's information on upcoming movies, such as G.I. Joe Retaliation, Bay's oft mentioned Pain & Gain and Star Trek Into Darkness, among others. The article is well worth a read, which you can find here.

As for the symbol, also not shown, some fans have taken it upon themselves to come up with ideas to try and show off the design. (Unfortunately, we currently have none of our own to share.)

So, tell us what you think! Feel free to join the discussion, post your own ideas for the new logo.

Transformers 4 won't hit theaters until June of 2014, but the rumors are already starting to fly. The latest rumor making the rounds originates from Spoiler TV and states that the new human leads will be a female high school senior and her boyfriend, a race car driver from Texas. Director Michael Bay has stated on several occasions that the film will feature a new cast, both human and robotic, but keep in mind that no source of any kind was cited. Multiple entertainment websites have picked up on this rumor and ran with it, but it should be taken with a grain of salt for the moment.

Spoiler TV wrote:It looks like Transformers 4 will have 2 new leads.

The new female lead that they are looking for is a high school senior and her boyfriend a Texas racing driver.
